The Extremely Meta Deadpool 2 Honest Trailer.

It doesn’t quite work…

…the way that they were trying to make it work, but it was a worthy effort and I laughed when Deadpool flipped the narrative.

[UPDATE]: I thought that I had more to say about that, but… I don’t? I do wonder if the Honest Trailer thing has peaked, though. Not at Frozen, but in general. I get the feeling that the folks at Honest Trailers are themselves wondering whether there’s really much more to this format that they can artistically explore, as it were. It can get a little trite, sometimes.

Still, they had Ryan Reynolds on to do the video, which is nicely and consciously subversive of his underlying message. Good move, that.

    I agree. The first Deadpool Honest Trailer made it work, this didn’t. Which is a shame, because I very much enjoyed the sequel.
